Early Ecclesiastical Organisation of Scandinavia, especially Sweden

Stefan Brink

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

This article addresses two vital, although very elusive and problematic, aspects of the early church in Scandinavia. One is the intermediate phase between initial Christianization (probably to be placed in the tenth and early eleventh centuries) and the later parish formation phase (in the late twelfth and thirteenth centuries). The other concerns the incentive for parish formation: one still unsolved problem, for instance, is why in Scandinavia the word to be used for a ‘parish’ was sokn, an old legal word, which more or less simultaneously became the word for a ‘parish’ used all over Scandinavia (except Iceland).
